Digitizing Medieval Manuscripts
The St. Chad Gospels, Materiality, Recoveries, and Representation in 2D & 3D
Amsterdam University Press
What does it mean to digitize a medieval manuscript? This book examines this question by exploring a range of advanced imaging technologies. The author focuses on the relationship between digital technologies and the complex materiality of manuscripts and the human bodies that engage them.
The chapters explore imaging technologies, interfaces to present digital surrogates, and limitations to and enhancements through the digital, plus historical photographs. Essential reading for all those involved in manuscript digitization projects in both scholarly and cultural heritage contexts.
Bill Endres is an Assistant Professor in the Department of English, University of Oklahoma, USA. He is a digital humanist who employs advanced imaging technologies on manuscripts such as the eighth-century St. Chad Gospels.
